Wave Hub Aids to Navigation

Please be advised that vessel THV Patricia is scheduled to carry out annual navigation mark maintenance at the Wave Hub offshore site from 12th August 2016 or as soon as possible thereafter as weather permits. The works are estimated to take two days and a further notice will be issued when the scheduled maintenance is complete.

The work will be confined to the vicinity of each of the six Wave Hub navigation marks but it should be noted that the vessel will at times be restricted in ability to manoeuvre and mariners are therefore requested to give a wide berth (>500m).

It is also respectfully requested that any fishing gear laid within 250m of the assigned positions should where possible be cleared in advance.
